Looking For a Ride - Abby Sun

Looking for a Ride

Filmmaker: Abby Sun

Looking for a Ride examines life on a rodeo circuit by trailing bullriders, bullfighters, and the bulls themselves through the ancient seasonal rhythms of working livestock. In between shots of rituals enacted for the rodeo and for the camera, the film also investigates the human-­animal relations that are developed in competing, training, and traveling between rodeos, simultaneously a performance of the last best place and a microcosm of present American economic realities.
